DC Comics fans won’t have to wait for the long-developing Justice League movie to see Batman and Superman together on the big screen.

According to Variety, the icon superheroes will be part of Warner Bros.’ Lego: The Piece of Resistance, the hybrid live-action and CG-animated film that co-director and co-writer Phil Lord has described as “something like if Michael Bay kidnapped Henry Selick to make a movie for him.”

Lord teams with his Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs collaborator Christopher Miller for the story of Emmet (voiced by Christopher Pratt of Parks and Recreation), an ordinary Lego mini-figure who’s  mistaken for the MasterBuilder and drafted into a fellowship on a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together.

As long promised, the movie will include a mix of classic and current Lego sets –  “We found a way to incorporate all of those worlds into having one uber-world, basically,” Lord teased two years ago — which includes Lego versions of the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel. Will Arnett has already signed on to voice Batman, and the directors are hoping to land their 21 Jump Street star Channing Tatum as Superman.

Animal Logic, the Australian studio that worked on Happy Feet, will handle the animation, which Variety says is expected to comprise 80 percent of Lego.

Warner Bros. and Lego have worked together since 2006 on Batman toys and video games. Lego Batman: The Videogame has sold more than 12 million copies since 2008; a sequel was released just last week. The two expanded their agreement last year to include the entire DC Entertainment library.

Lego: The Piece of Resistance opens Feb. 28, 2014.

  • It being a Warner Bros property, one would hope they could wrangle an appearance from the harry potter gang as well.  I imagine the PotC and LotR gang would be too much to hope for.
